Â Crasso consulibus, Usipetes Germani et item Tencteri magna [cum] multitudine hominum flumen Rhenum transierunt, non longe a mari, quo Rhenus influit. [2] Causa transeundi fuit quod ab Suebis complures annos exagitati bello premebantur et agri cultura COMMENTARIUS QUARTUS 34 De bello Gallico prohibebantur. [3] Sueborum gens est longe maxima et bellicosissima Germanorum omnium. [4] Hi centum pagos habere dicuntur, ex quibus quotannis singula milia armatorum bellandi causa ex finibus educunt.

[2] Commisso proelio diutius nostrorum militum impetum hostes ferre non potuerunt ac terga verterunt.

[3] Illi equitatu atque essedis ad flumen progressi ex loco superiore nostros prohibere et proelium committere coeperunt. [4] Repulsi ab equitatu se in silvas abdiderunt, locum nacti egregie et natura et opere munitum, quem domestici belli, ut videbantur, causa iam ante praeparaverant; [5] nam crebris arboribus succisis omnes introitus erant praeclusi. [6] Ipsi ex silvis rari propugnabant nostrosque intra munitiones ingredi prohibebant.
